'Game Of Thrones' Cast Then & Now: See Their Transformations

By Paris Close

May 20, 2019

It's a bit unreal that, after eight whole years, Game of Thrones really came to an end with its final episode ever, last night. With eight seasons of love and scandal, plot-twist treacheries and alliances, wars, dragons, and White Walkers all behind us now, the HBO series has undoubtedly left an imprint in the hearts of fans of the medieval franchise. This was all due in part, of course, to the awesome ensemble cast of characters, who have matured into household names since the show's inception in 2011.

From the baby-faced Arya and Bran Stark to beloved underdogs Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, see how much the stars who played these roles have changed since then to now.

Be warned: Spoilers from Season 8 ahead!
